That sounds good so far Fred. I guess what I’m trying to judge is, how dry is “dry”? As far as wind-driven rain, we might get a storm of that seriousness here only 2-3 times a year, and I would guess the rest is just a straight vertical drizzle or sprinkle. It’s also somewhat rare that we see more than ~1 week of continuous moisture and overcast skies—usually the sun comes out and dries stuff out pretty reliably.

That said, could just 1 week of high humidity and a touch of direct moisture be enough to permanently warp or damage some of my lumber? That’s the kind of thing I’m trying to figure out.
